I used to fuck with TDE pretty heavily but I feel like outside of Kendrick it's been diminishing returns. And even with Kendrick, my personal ranking is Section 80 > Good Kid > TPAB > Damn, not to say I don't like all 4 projects.
Yes. I remember liking HiiPower when it came out though. I’ve liked songs here and there over the years but as a rapper he really doesn’t do it for me. *Guru voice* It’s mostly tha voice.
My favorite TDE rapper in theory is probably Jay Rock, just in terms of how he sounds, but I also don’t care about his output.
Isaiah Rashad low key the best even if I didn't fuck w/ the last one as much as Clivia Demo. His best is a loosie anyway
I still generally like Kendrick.
I also generally like SZA music.
I think my personal favorite off TDE is still Isaiah Rashad but of course he is a ghost.
I also don’t really like SZA. She makes the type of R&B I’ve never really been all that interested in and which has gotten a disproportionate amount of attention this decade. Though I do think she’s talented of course. As are the TDE rappers for what it’s worth.
TDE keeps rashad locked up in the vault
SZA's latest album is incredible, definitely stands apart from her cohorts
I remember when tde hyped up a black hippy album and people still actually think it will come.
What's more likely to get released
The black hippy album or the Kendrick/j Cole album
Isaiah Rashad is itttt, love both Clivia Demo and The Sun's Tirade. We need that new album.
For a long time, Q was the only TDE guy I liked until Rashad and SZA turned up. Never really bothered with Jay Rock or Ab Soul outside a couple of tracks. Took me ages to get into Kendrick but now he’s probably my favourite of the bunch.
I think I liked early Rock, Soul and Q but after their debuts I just went meh lmao.
Echoing the Zay appreciation, last album was great and the clips I’ve heard of new stuff all sounds amazing.
Speaking of Isaiah Rashad
It's not often I'm a "fan" of a record label itself but I definitely am of TDE, I'll listen to ANYTHING they put out. All four members of Black Hippy are among some of my favorite rappers (though I'll agree Q's album this year was disappointing and Ab-Soul never reached the heights of Control System again and probably never will), and of course Rashad is fantastic. I actually like SZA's early stuff more but CTRL was good too, and SiR has some pretty great if not special R&B. Reason has a ton of potential as a rapper too
They have an impeccable ear for quality imo
I don't really like The London but I hope Thug wins even though the Grammy's are a joke.
Higher should win
Bar the YBN Cordae inclusion, that is a shocking list of songs/albums.
Foxy was good
Not a single woman on there. Really pathetic list.
Good for Cordae
Igor, Suge, Down Bad and drip too hard are my choices
